Two Republican Senators recently came forward with what they refer to as “substantial evidence” that could stop the Russia investigation in its tracks.

The investigation centered around the release of an anti-Trump dossier that has been largely disproved–which many Democrats still rally behind.

Now, the new information could be detrimental to the investigation and finally, end the Russia witch hunt once and for all.

The two senators- Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley and South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham- provide new details about a previously undisclosed memo that may prove former M16 agent Christopher Steele misled the FBI in the dossier.

Grassley and Graham also revealed that Steele was the author of the memo, and was provided the information by an associate of Hillary Clinton.

The Daily Caller reported:

“It is troubling enough that the Clinton Campaign funded Mr. Steele’s work, but that these Clinton associates were contemporaneously feeding Mr. Steele allegations raises additional concerns about his credibility,” Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, wrote Monday.

The details are in a heavily redacted memo that Grassley and Graham released on Monday. The two Republicans sent the document to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein last month along with a letter referring Steele for criminal investigation.

The FBI reviewed the referral for classified information and approved the release of the document in heavily redacted form.

It has two bombshell revelations.

“There is substantial evidence suggesting that Mr. Steele materially misled the FBI about a key aspect of his dossier efforts, one which bears on his credibility,” Graham and Grassley wrote to Wray and Rosenstein.

Much of their letter refers to Steele’s contacts with media outlets prior to the 2016 election. Steele has disclosed in court filings in London that he held off-the-record meetings with reporters at several news outlets prior to the election.

The Grassley-Graham referral suggests that Steele misled the FBI about contacts he had with reporters about the dossier. A four-page memo released by the House Intelligence Committee on Friday contains similar hints about Steele’s disclosures about his contacts with the press.

The memo ultimately suggests that Steele did not tell the FBI that he had met with reporters in September 2016 to discuss an investigation of Donald Trump he was carrying out on behalf of Fusion GPS.

Steele met with a reporter at Yahoo! News, Michael Isikoff, who was the first to write an article based on the British spy’s point of view.

But according to the House Intel memo, Steele improperly lied and concealed this information from the FBI–including the meeting with Isikoff.

Steele’s dossier includes 17 memos in all and was published on January 10, 2017, by BuzzFeed.

But this new information is leading many to wonder if even Democrats can still argue the validation of the dossier.
